Shower and thunderstorm chance this afternoon

Partly cloudy and hot for Tuesday afternoon. Highs will climb back into the low 90's.  For today there's about a 40% shot for afternoon showers and storms.

They may be a little better shot for some much needed rain on Thursday as a weak front crosses the region.  Hopefully we can pick up some measurable rain Thursday afternoon and evening.  Right now we're running about a 5 inch deficit in rainfall.

Temperatures heading into the weekend will still be in the upper 80's and low 90's with a chance for storms.
